Default HEAT question--is it pre or post on each track?

Hope it's OK to post here. I didn't want the question to get lost in the giant HEAT thread at the top of this forum.

I saw Kenny Gioia raise this issue in the above thread, and didn't see it answered.

Since the HEAT effect is dependent on the amount of level hitting it, it seems like if it were a normal plug you'd spend some time bringing up the level coming into it so you'd be getting the effect you wanted. So is the HEAT processing taking place before or after other plugs you might have on each individual track?

And if a track is recorded softly, does that automatically mean it won't be affected as strongly as tracks with hotter levels? I suppose I'm guessing that it's pre- the other plugs, and I could always process a track with more gain in AudioSuite.

I get that it's a different processing philosophy going on here, that it's the cumulative effect that's important. But it would be nice to know. I didn't see any mention in the User Guide.

thanks

Wouldn't it be possible to figure it out with a spectrum analyzer and/or accurate metering in the first insert slot? Just a suggestion...

Hi,

Its post unless you select the pre button!

The only way to control the level into it is to leave it as post and use previous plugs to adjust signal level. in conjunction with the master control.
